DO you believe you can?????

What's your biggest limitation? 
What's your biggest fear?
What's the biggest threat that you face?
What's the scariest thing you know?

It's not death,
or tragedy. 

The most disastrous force that exist, outside of evil itself
is a subtle enemy called DOUBT. 

Whether it's doubt about God or doubt about self,
it distracts, paralyzes and kills dreams and dreamers. 

So watch out!

Do you believe you can do something?
Do you have faith that God is with you?
Are you ready to fight and pay the price for what you want?

So go ahead, dive in. 
The mountain doesn't look so big from the top.

25,000 Youth Rescued in Brazil in ONE day!

Nearly a week ago, in one day we hit two cities back to back and spoke to about 25,000 youth. I teamed up with the "Where U Going" Team in Brazil (South America), who are better known as the "Dose Maid Forte" Team which literally means (A Stronger Dose). The idea is to raise awareness that drugs and crime are not the "strongest" or best way to solve your problems. There is a positive escape. And that is the direction that the Youth Power Group and I are aiming to share with people.
Check out some of the photos of the events below. 

Below is a picture of Rio de Janeiro Brazil where 10,000 youth gathered to receive help to break free from drugs, crime, prostitution, etc. The response was amazing. 

Below is a picture of Sao Paulo Brazil where the same event was held on the same day 5 hrs later, in a hall that fit 6,000. But the turn out was 15,000 so we had to put people in the parking area downstairs.

Here is the parking area filled with nearly 4,000 youth eager to hear the message story of my life and the message of hope.

Below is one happy youth member taking a picture after getting his book autographed. 

The events on August 25th, 2012 were a great success. I only hope that there will be many more opportunities such as these to reach out to the masses and let them know that no matter how bad your life is, no matter how many terrible decisions you've made, no matter your past. There is a "Stronger Dose" available than any other drug. There is hope and there is a way out.

Brazil has been great...

Here is another video with some updates on how things are going over here in Brazil. To write everything out would take too long, so I decided to do a video. Check it out and leave your comments.

I firmly believe that we should never forget the good examples that we see. This is the perfect example of what love really is. You don't just say you love someone, you do everything you can to help them in their time of greatest need. This is the right spirit.

Take your own advice.

First of all... DO NOT follow the above example!

Now with that being said... I was thinking about my last post (Just Calm Down) today, and I had an opportunity to apply my own advice.

I was here preparing for a trip out of the country and suddenly I realized how many things need to get done before I go. But the catch is that I only have a day left before I travel. So I had two choices:

A) freak out and go into a frenzy trying to fix everything at once

B) Calm down and do one thing at a time

Thankfully I chose option B. I calmed down, and focused on one thing at a time. And funny enough, I got many more things done that I thought I would. Including finding time to write this blog.

So take my word on this one. You can take control of your life and your day and see great things happen. Just do it.

P.S. I know this wasn't really about taking your own advice, but I took my own, so you should get the point. What you tell others to do, make sure you do it too.
